RayWiki is a collaborative Rayman encyclopaedia based on the MediaWiki software. It was founded on January 4th 2008 by Hunchman801, and it is one of the most important Pirate-Community websites, along with RayTunes. It is widely considered as the most complete source for Rayman knowledge.


History

RayWiki's main page

The idea for RayWiki was initially posited in December 2007 by administrator Hunchman801 as a replacement to his RaymanEnyclo facility.[1] The idea was met with encouragement, leading to a beta version of the Wiki opening in January 2008, under the name WikiRayman, with individual English and French wikis. Content from the old RaymanEncyclo was brought in to the new Wiki, in addition to new content written by Pirate Community users, who were now able to contribute to a Rayman encyclopaedic resource.

In February 2008, the name of the Wiki was changed to RayWiki, after a vote was made in favour of the new title[2][3]. The Wiki continued to function as a beta until October 2008, where it was announced it was moving out of beta and into final release[4][5].

A German version of RayWiki was added on March 12th 2009, a Hungarian version on June 22nd 2011, and an Italian version on June 3rd 2014.

On August 13th 2014, the 2009-founded Rayman wiki in Polish language hosted on the Wikia platform was transferred to Pirate-Community and became the Polish version of RayWiki.

A Spanish version was then added on June 14th 2015.

On October 30th 2016, the wiki was updated along with the rest of Pirate-Community, and its appearance aligned with that of the forum.

As of November 2016, RayWiki contains more than 4,400 articles in seven languages. The Polish version is the most complete, with 1699 articles.
